President Trump's ears have stopped ringing on Saturday evenings, but no such luck for Elizabeth Warren: Saturday Night Live again trotted out Kate McKinnon to play the presidential contender in its Cold Open, reports Vanity Fair. Appearing at an Iowa town hall, McKinnon declares that she's "just housed a Nature Valley bar in the hallway, so I am jacked up!" The focus of the sketch is Warren being the only candidate as VF puts it, "having to answer in ad nauseam for her multi-pronged plan." Deadpans McKinnon: "When Bernie was talking Medicare For All everyone was like ‘Oh cool!’ And then they turned to me and they said ‘Fix it, Mom!'" Kristen Stewart guest-hosted the episode, with Coldplay returning as musical guest. Video highlights, which include a dog, in the gallery. (More Saturday Night Live stories.)
